Suspension Service & Repair for 2017 BMW 230i

Is It Time For 2017 BMW 230i Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2017 BMW 230i, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 230i feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2017 BMW 230i in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your BMW 230i suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your BMW 230i

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2017 BMW 230i’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your BMW up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2017 BMW 230i shock and strut replacement since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn BMW 230i shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2017 BMW 230i’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2017 230i Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my BMW's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my BMW 230i? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way BMW intended.
  • When should I have my BMW 230i power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 230i’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per BMW's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
